    quotes

    Karl Marx, German political philosopher and economist (1818-1883).

    "Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, & the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people."

    Samuel Clemens "Mark Twain", American author and humorist (1835-1910).

    "Man is a marvelous curiosity ... he thinks he is the Creator's pet ... he even believes the Creator loves him; has a passion for him; sits up nights to admire him; yes and watch over him and keep him out of trouble. He prays to
    him and thinks He listens. Isn't it a quaint idea." [Letters from the Earth]

    George Bernard Shaw, Irish-born English playwright

    "The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one."

    Periyar - freedom fighter, rationalist, social reformer (1879-1973)

    "I will not subject you to a restraint, in the manner of scriptures and ancient works - by stating that you should trust what I say, that my words are Apocalyptic; and that if you do not believe me, you will become atheists and go to Hell.

    If what I say is not agreeable to your instinct, knowledge, experience and inquiry, reject it."

    Geno - That alone would have made the masses agree to disagree, agreeably

    Nothing like a master wordsmith to keep us hanging on to their every word, no matter how absurd. However, for a non-conformist to dogma, I agree with every word that Mark Twain said.

    Well! thats the most unique thing about Periyar! And if we consider his strong influence in the thamizh society we can understand why that is so too!

    This is where "Dogma" and "Humane philosophies" differ and part ways - telling us which way to go!

    It's altogether a different issue that each of us choose a particular way!

    Hi blah2!

    Well! Is it some kinda subtle criticism about the quotes that have been given?

    I don think there would be any friction in giving quotes. Please give some quotes that you have liked and admired

    " Few if any seemed to have grasped the truest principle of reality: new knowledge leads to yet more awesome mysteries. Greater physiological knowledge of the brain makes the existence of the soul less possible yet more probable by the nature of the search.

    Do you see? Of course you don't. You've reached the limits of your ability to comprehend. But nevermind - that's beside the point. "


    Stephen King, best-selling author and novelist, in "The Gunslinger"

    ராமலிங்க சுவாமிகள்:

    பெற்ற தாய் தனை மகன் மறந்தாலும்
    பிள்ளையை பெறும் தாய் மறந்தாலும்
    உற்ற தேகத்தை உயிர் மறந்தாலும்
    உயிரை மேவிய உடல் மறந்தாலும்
    கற்றன்ன சகம் கலை மறந்தாலும்
    கண்கள் இன்றிமைப்பது மறந்தாலும்
    நற்றவர் தொடருள் இருந்தெங்கும்
    நமச்சிவாயத்தை நான் மறவேனே

    (The quotes here seemed a mite biased...)
